Join us for this special Black History Month event dedicated to the Cuban 5!
African American Activists have played a key role in supporting the Cuban Revolution! Join us for a night of discussion as we explore this rich political history!
We will be showing the amazing film After the Battle by Estela Bravo: For 13 years, Cubans and Angolans fought side by side against South African forces in a little-known war that helped to change the destiny of one part of Africa. What was the motivation and what was the outcome for the ones who took part in their conflict? Those who fought answer these questions for each side. Filmed on location in Angola, South Africa, Namibia and Cuba, this documentary examines the politics of the war from all sides and features remarkable combat footage, archival material and interviews with Cuban and South African soldiers as well as grieving families of those who were killed in the war.Panel:
